Mount Horeb High School has an excellent music program, especially band, but three choir and orchestra are great too. The food and facilities are also above average. The teachers are amazing, but college readiness is lacking. Very few AP courses are offered, and college counseling centers around community and state schools. Students aren’t taught much about the college application process. The clubs are good, but priority is clearly and heavily given to sports related activities over academic and volunteer based clubs.

Absolutely wonderful Art and Music programs! All of the teachers and staff are generally very kind and many go above and beyond to make you feel safe and welcome. It is typically very liberal but seeing as it is a rural town there are a few students who are very outspoken in their hate but there are multiple clubs and committees in place to help create safe spaces and battle hate as well as stigmas! If you want to go to an ivy league college this really isn't the place for you though, with an 4.0 grading scale the best they can get you is a decent out of state. You would never be able to achieve your Cornell dreams. The diversity is almost nonexistent and it's very odd being one of the few kids who isn't predominantly scandinavian or german.
The school is very nice, it recently had an update done, in which the school needed desperately. However, it is a small community and many of the people in charge have very small minded thinking. The administration at Mount horeb schools is not good, pointless spending and overcharging is common. However, the teachers there are great. Almost all teachers are willing to help and will take time to help out one on one. Overall, I would say this is one of the better schools for education in Dane county.
